On May 26, Laval executive-committee vice-president David De Cotis and Saint-Martin city councillor Aline Dib took part in a ground-breaking ceremony marking the start of construction on the new Carrefour Santé 440.
Many medical services
The new facility on the southern service road of Autoroute 440 near Autoroute 13 will offer a number of professional health services under its roof when built. Notably it will have a family medicine clinic, a sports medicine centre, a surgical clinic for minor operations, an occupational therapy clinic, an orthotics/prosthetics clinic and a diagnostic radiology clinic.
As well, there will also be services for audiology, physiology and a pharmacy. The ground-breaking took place with Dr. Pierre Ranger, an orthopedics surgeon and director of the Centre de médecine sportive de Laval, as well as with numerous other partners in the project.
All under one roof
“This important project aims to improve accessibility and quality of care for patients by bringing together under one roof a variety of services and professionals in health,” said Ronald Laramée, developer and president for planning of Plani Pro Inc.
The centre will have three storeys with more than 300 parking spaces. Opening is foreseen for February 2017. The family medicine clinic will be opening a month later in March. Around 50 health professionals are expected to occupy the building.
